Andrew Goodlace made Sun A/NZ acting MD

Following the resignation of Duncan Bennet, Sun Microsystems has appointed Andrew Goodlace acting managing director for Australia and New Zealand. He had previously been the company's director of sales for A/NZ.

Bennet resigned to pursue other interests. According to a PR spokeswoman he is taking a break but wishes to stay in the IT industry.

“Duncan is highly respected by his peers, staff and colleagues in the industry and we thank him for his exceptional leadership and many contributions over the past 10 years” says Sun Microsystems Asia Pacific president Lionel Lim.

Commenting on his time at Sun, Bennet says in a statement that he has spent many rewarding years at the company.

“While this is a difficult economic environment the market has responded positively to the initiatives that are helping our customers get more out of their IT, whether it be energy savings, open storage or virtualisation.”

Goodlace has been in the IT industry for more than 20 years, managing sales and partner engagement teams as well as holding previous managing director roles with several IT companies.

"Andrew is a talented and experienced leader with a long history in delivering outstanding business results. His impressive sales track-record, strong knowledge of customer needs and interest in developing his people, will ensure we continue to execute our growth strategy and build awareness of Sun's solutions and open source technology,” Lim says.
